Provide the ability to label features with their associated attachments.  This would be especially helpfull when creating exhibits that include field photos collected with a mobile device.

A project that I've been sitting on for a year is to be able to create a map that is labeled as callouts with logos. I tried adding the logos manually to the map document, but I got a couple of hours into it (on two different occasions) and the images that I had added to the map simply disappeared. I've downloaded an image editing software so I may just create the map using that.

If I understand the request correctly (i.e. maybe instead of "label" a feature, you want to symbolize a feature using an attached photo as the symbol) this is possible with ArcGIS Pro 2.7's addition of the ability to drive picture markers through attribute-driven symbology.

This is summarized in the what's new help as:


Maybe that will not address every need for those upvoting this idea, but hopefully it will help provide a solution for some users!
